Gamers, rejoice.

Razer has come out with the Blade, touting as “the world’s first true gaming laptop.” While that notion is a bit stretched (many manufacturers make laptops suitable for World of Warcraft), gamer and laptop enthusiasts are already raving about the Razer Blade. After all, it has 8 gigs of memory.

The Blade is an 17.3-inch laptop with 1080p resolution, a 2.8-gigahertz Intel Core i7 2640 processor, a NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M video card, 2 gigabytes of dedicated GDDR5 video RAM (did we already mention 8 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM?), 320-gigabyte hard drive, hi-def webcam, HDMI input, ethernet, three USB ports, backlit keyboard and adaptive buttons programmable for in-game commands.

For all that power, this certainly isn’t a MacBook Air. At 0.88 inch tall, it weighs in at 6.97 pounds, not necessarily carrying around bricks, but a bit on the heavier side. Then again, this is a 17-inch computer. With 8 gigs of RAM. Have I emphasized that enough?
